Abstract:

An erthematous reaction was noted in approximately 15 of a small group of men who wore the test socks. Their skin reactions were not of a serious nature and seemed to be healing despite continued wear of the socks. However, since one subject may have had the rash prior to the test, it is not possible with certainty to incriminate the subject items.
